Title: FilteredPush
Creator: Wang, Zhimin; et al.
Abstract: After three decades of standards development and computerization of natural history collections many millions of vouchered specimen records are available in global electronic networks. Vast numbers of specimen records remain only accessible on paper. Available records are highly variable in quality and rich in three decades worth of data capture and migration errors. Far more seriously, specimen data is being brought to the desktops of the researchers and specialists best able to correct and clean those data, without an easy means for the return of those researchers' corrections to those specimen collections. It is this very annotation by specialists that keeps natural history collections vital. We are designing and implementing a network, which we term Filtered Push, to connect remote sites where annotations can be generated with the authoritative databases of the collections holding the vouchers to which those annotations apply.
